Zulu 33P RIB Vacuum Injection Process

The Vacuum Infusion Process involves applying vacuum pressure to laminate materials. The process starts with a dry material being laid into the mold where vacuum is then applied before liquid resin is poured in.

Vacuums are created using carefully placed tubing that pulls the resin into the laminate.

This process is being used to build the Zulu 33P Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) by the Sweden Zulu Marine.

Their boats are designed in cooperation with Adam Younger and Petter Martens some of the best designers in the industry and both members of RIBs ONLY.
